Peptides are effective anti-aging ingredients for skin care that can improve the health and appearance of your skin!
Peptides are proteins made up of long or short chains of amino acids. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein. Peptides may be natural or synthetic. Most peptides used in cosmetics are created in the lab which allows chemists greater control on their stability and effectiveness in skin-care products.
There absolutly is no “magic peptide” that does it all. If there was we would all be using it. Consumers want a one-size-fits-all skin care and sadly to say, it just does not exist! Also keep in mind that a well-rounded skincare line contains more than just one ingredient system. Skincare lines need to offer consumers ingredients like anti-oxidants, lighteners, exfoliators, hydrators and SPF.
